wikiHow:OLPC Stage Two Overview

This is a working document for development of Stage II of the OLPC/wikiHow project. If you have any questions, please contact Felicity (Flickety). Thanks!

Stage II of OLPC will consist of:

  • Creating new articles according to OLPC specifications
  • Editing nominated existing articles to bring them up to quality standard required; research and accuracy checking; updating of articles already sent with new or better information (potentially part of wiki-training exercises also)
  • Requesting articles from users via Requests and Collaboration Corner
  • Developing wikiHow/OLPC mentorship program - mentorship scheme between wikiHow youth contributors and OLPC youth:

    • cross-cultural exchanges, friendship building, ideas sharing
    • wiki know-how sharing - wiki Youth teaching OLPC youth about wiki collaboration processes
    • development of ongoing classroom and educational relationships
  • Inter-organizational relationship development - strengthening ties and interaction between wikiHow and OLPC to ensure ongoing relationship to assist OLPC children/youth and to also bring in educational resources for a wide range of educational specialists in both developing and developed countries.
